New Music This Week (w/e 17/11/17)

Bjork – Blissing Me

New single from Bjork‘s upcoming album Utopia, which will be with us on the 24th. She just gets better and better

Wolf Alice – Song To The Siren (Strongroom Session)

It’s one of the most moving songs ever written. My personal favourite version is by The Czars, but this is wonderful too.

U2 – American Soul

Thank Christ this is good. I hadn’t liked any of U2‘s new stuff since ‘The Blackout’. Songs Of Experience comes out on December 1st

Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds – It’s A Beautiful World

Famously, Noel recently said that he aims to lose the ‘parka monkeys’ with this album. Everything we’ve heard so far has been impressive, but those parka monkeys are nothing if not resilient

Tears For Fears – Head Over Heels (Talamanca System Tribal Persuasion Remix)

Our favourite Tears For Fears song (well, it’s between this and ‘Sowing The Seeds Of Love‘) gets a laid-back, ‘tribal’ remix. We’re not, er, head over heels about it, but it’s worth a listen

Fleetwood Mac – Say You Love Me (Early Version)

News came through this week that The Mac will release a 5-disc Super Deluxe Edition of their self-titled 1975 album, also known as the first one featuring the Rumours line-up. This early take of Christine’s ‘Say You Love Me’ is included

 

New Album Of The Week
Karl Blau – Out Her Space

Karl Blau's 2017 album 'Out Her Space'

The follow-up to last year’s breakthrough album Introducing Karl Blau (actually his ninth album, fact fans), the best thing about this collection is that it just sounds lovely. The production is crisp, the songs are top-notch, and he should be huge.

 

Reissue Of The Week
Queen – News Of The World (Super Deluxe Edition)

Queen News Of The World 40th Anniversary Box Set, 2017

It’s been 40 years since Queen released their first ‘stripped-back’ album.  The previous year’s A Day At the Races was somewhat swamped with overdubs, and with the punk scene nipping at their heels, Queen decided to record the new album quickly, with a minimum of fuss. The trademark harmony vocals are still there, but the album is certainly more organic sonically than previous ones. The video below details what’s in the box, and the ‘Raw Sessions’ are a joy
